A Quantum Leap for the Digital Twins

The modern computers we are used to today are already garnering the tag of “classical computers”. A new kid in the block –quantum computing – is stepping out of the labs into the real world. Quantum computing is expected to unleash computing capabilities hitherto unknown to humankind. The American self-help writer Guy Finley said, “The Read more about A Quantum Leap for the Digital Twins[…]

Digital Twins vs Simulation: Three Key Differences

Digital Twins is a concept, not a single product or a piece of technology. Multiple technologies—3D simulation, IOT, 4G/5G, big data, blockchain, edge computing, cloud computing and artificial intelligence —come together to make the concept a reality. The core principle is, for a physical entity or an asset, a digital equivalent in the virtual world. Read more about Digital Twins vs Simulation: Three Key Differences[…]

Digital Twins : The Wisdom of the Crowd

Wisdom of the crowd, credited to Aristotle’s theory of collective judgement, is a well-established principle. The core premise is a group of people collectively make smarter and better decisions, in comparison to the individual experts. Plenty of examples are available around us—Wikipedia, stock market, Google navigation, user rating on websites like Amazon, AirBnB and, of course, those most-dreaded business Read more about Digital Twins : The Wisdom of the Crowd[…]

The Path to Digital Twins

The Digital Twins concept is entering mainstream. The core principle is, for a physical entity or an asset, a digital equivalent exists in the virtual world. To duplicate our real-world into a virtual copy, multiple technologies—3D simulation, IoT, 4G/5G, Big Data, blockchain, Edge and cloud computing, and artificial intelligence—are required to come together. As we Read more about The Path to Digital Twins[…]

Why Executives Need to Take Note of ‘Digital Twins’

“Digital Twins”, as a concept, has been around for a while. Michael Grieves at the University of Michigan in the US wrote about it in a whitepaper in 2002. NASA’s been long using Digital Twins for its space mission, as they (obviously)don’t have physical access to the equipment, once it leaves our planet. Simulation and Read more about Why Executives Need to Take Note of ‘Digital Twins’[…]

How Telecommunications Industry Can Use Blockchain For Innovation

Telecommunications industry (telcos), once considered as the pinnacle of innovation, is under tremendous pressure to innovate. Over-the-top (OTT) players like WhatsApp, Netflix and Facebook delivered a strong round of disruptive surprise and pushed the telcos into a downward spiral. With 5G around the bend and setting the stage for the next round of disruption, can Read more about How Telecommunications Industry Can Use Blockchain For Innovation[…]

The Scalability Conundrum of Blockchain Networks

“But what about scalability?” Blockchain technology awareness levels have gone up. The level of excitement is high. Peer pressure is mounting. Yet, the scalability question never fails to come up in a blockchain conversation with the enterprises. The enterprises’ fear of scalability is completely justified. The suppliers of the blockchain technology understand the bottleneck. Let’s Read more about The Scalability Conundrum of Blockchain Networks[…]
